Reshoring Work

Reshoring with Bowles and Walker Ltd

Bowles and Walker is helping with the trend to bring back plastic injection moulding work to the UK that has previously been carried out abroad, particularly in China.

Bowles and Walker supply many local firms in the East Anglia region (Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire). OASE Ltd (formally Reef One) which produces a large range of high specification fish tanks and equipment, is one of these customers.

However, Oase was having issues importing some batches of plastic moulded components for its products from China. Over time Oase had further problems with their supply including quality, batch sizes, time delay and delivered price.

Oase decided, after several consultations with Bowles & Walker, to bringing the moulding work back to the UK. This enabled better control over their supply chain, products could be delivered when they wanted them, quality was improved and pricing was competitive.

Bowles and Walker solved many of Oase’s issues meaning there was no more expensive product transportation, no more having to send engineers to China to sort out problems and no need to order unreasonably large batches of product to keep prices down.
